Stephen Curry injury update: MRI reveals MCL sprain for Warriors star; out at least three weeks

Golden State Warriors fans can breathe a slight sigh of relief on Saturday, as MRI results revealed that Stephen Curry suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his left knee, and will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

The fact that Curry could theoretically be back for the start of the playoffs is great news, as there was some fear that he could be out for the season after suffering an injury in Friday's 106-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks.

In his first game back from a right ankle injury, Curry tweaked his left leg and was forced to exit the game in the third quarter. He had 29 points at the time of the injury.

This is just the latest in a string of high-profile injuries for the Warriors. All-Stars Draymond Green, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson have all missed time recently due to various ailments.

At this point the Warriors have probably abandoned the idea of catching the Rockets for the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference -- Houston led by four games entering Friday -- with their focus on getting everyone healthy for the start of the postseason.
